Apartments could decrease in size

Alternative designs are being considered for the apartment blocks to be built at 85-89 Brightside Road.
Last year, developer Ozone Limited gained resource consent to build 61 apartments on the site, in three, six-storey blocks.
However, recently Ozone's director Colin Craig told the paper that the company is currently exploring other design options and won't necessarily proceed with the original plan.
He says that the final result could be less than 61 units, and perhaps even restricted to three levels.
He says the company received feedback that reducing the size would go down better with the local community.
No further details are available as yet and no timeframe has been advised as to when work could begin on the site.
The 4012sqm site behind New World supermarket, on the corner of Brightside and Ozone Roads, was bought by Centurion Management Services (director Colin Craig) in early 2016.
